First time going. Loved the music and the jazzy vibe. Food was great, drink prices a little high though. Will come back.

Making the reservation was a little difficult because we had six in our group and wanted to be where the music was, and that seem to be an issue. But once we got there the staff was very accommodating and even though we were not in the same room with the music we could still hear it quite well.

Went there for two dollar tacos and marvel trivia. Service was a little slow, but that was no fault of the server, I think they may have been shortstaffed (like most places right now). Overall, we were very happy with everything and will definitely be back!

Kim Keyz was excellent. Parking and traffic was a mess. Next time light rail.

Had 2 reservations in advance to watch them play (there is 3 options when you book, normal sitting, bar or high top selected high top and normal setting). They moved us to a small room on the side. When we asked to seat were they were playing jazz they had real bad attitude, although half of the tables were empty. We left and came back talked to the manager, they finally sat us down but she said you can’t be here longer than 1 and half hour with an attitude. Food wasn’t that great either. Had the salmon and chicken entree. All those empty tables were empty the entire time we were there. With drinks we spend near $200 and still they had attitude. Don’t recommend.

The Wait Staff was Great Very Friendly Very Tentative! Food was Good. But the Menu was Not correct. Had Jerk Chicken on the menu but did not offer it so instead of letting us know they brought out Buffalo wings!

The entertainment JLove was fabulous! Our seats though, we could not really see the stage as it was blocked by the stairs.

You can request a seat near the stage when making a reservation. We will do our best to accommodate. We hope you give us another try!

Went to opening night so some chaos was expected. Very cool they saved the old building. Food was good but the charcuterie board was smaller than Liberty location. Drinks are super high anyway but more so last night. They were half size due to not having glasses but still charged full price. $10 margaritas in small OJ glasses, lol. They never leave the shaker and serve half glass martinis. Overall will come again for the music.

Gosh we are sorry you had a bad experience. We are indeed working out the details as Covid made many many things not arrive in time for our opening. Give us a few weeks and we think you will be pleased.

We went to alamo drafthouse every weekend for 6 years. So happy they left most of the great interior.
Food was just ok.
Hardly any choices…pricey for what you get.
Hope they get dancing back because that was what kept people going.
Swing dancing.
Salsa!!!!
